Digital Festival

D Darren Public Seen by 275

Nice to meet some Cascaders at The Fuse recently.

There was talk about what to do during the digital festival later this year, some talk of tying Cascade related stuff together with some sort of futuristic storytelling.

Unfortunately it was near the end of the session and we didnt really have much time to discuss ideas, but this made me think of this concept Eric Hunting has outlined which I feel drawn to use for inspiration for an area/installation at an event or something.... sometime


I hope people find it interesting, particularly think the architects in the group may find lots they could get their teeth into, although the concept could act as a framework/theme from which to hang lots of stuff.

I find it fuses well with (is?) the recent sci-fi genre https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solarpunk which appears to be getting increasing attention from all the cool kids... Think this could offer more inspiration? Nice to have some positivity.

This is really exciting!

Yeah, pods in Brighton! A life-long goal!

I know that Warda/Jon & Natalie had mini sessions on design & impro for the next meeting. Do you want to do a session on this concept. 3 mini sessions in an eve feels real good.

I'll propose this & put it to the group :)

I am also obsessed (I don't use that word lightly) with small living spaces. I spend most of my evenings looking at tiny architecture.

Next Meeting - Setting a Course Closed Fri 22 Apr 2016 9:08PM

I know Felix is leading us out to the downs to camp with fire at some point but I'd like to propose a short meeting in May to set a course.

Warda/Jon & Natalie suggested running mini sessions on speculative design & improvisation for the next meeting. Darren's got some Nomadic Eco Village content to share. 3 mini sessions of 15/20 minutes in an eve feels real good to me.

So, I propose 3 little sessions w an open session after a break to coming to consensus on plans for September? Who is in for a meeting end of April / first week of May?

17.30 - 19.00 Wednesday 4th May at the Hackspace?

Mick, I realise your May is super busy - the floor is wide open for you to say something about performing a meaningful alternative economy over a weekend. Be great if you could ground our ideas on the food exchange.

It would be good to get as many people who've connected with interest on this project there for the 1 hr and a half to really gauge what enthusiasm there is.

Due to the nature of my work I never know where I'll be in the county or when I'll finish. But if I can I'll come.

I'm game. I'll have a think if there is anything I can contribute knowledge wise.

Sorry a bit late to state my position on the proposal, but I'm up for coming, will be in the area, could talk a bit about the nomadic ecovillage concept and I'm flexible on timing.
